MONTREAL - The federal government says it is supporting five research projects aimed at preventing Alzheimer's disease and autism.

The goal of the research is to discover new treatment and prevention strategies.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the announcement in Montreal today.

The federal funds are part of a public-private partnership that involves the Brain Canada Foundation, the Azrieli Foundation and the Chagnon family.

Researchers at McGill University, the University of Toronto, McMaster University and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health will lead the projects.
